Sting To Present The Last Ship In New York

in News

Sting will preview and, supposedly, retire the songs from his upcoming album, The Last Ship, during a series of ten benefit concerts at New York’s Public Theater.

The series, set for September 25 to October 9, will be called “An Evening With Sting” and will feature songs from the upcoming Broadway show, written by Sting, John Logan and Brian Yorkey, along with projections to help show how the music for the show was developed.

Oskar Eustis, artistic director of the Public Theater, said in a statement “The Last Ship is shaping up to be a masterpiece, both an elegy for and a celebration of the working-class life of the Newcastle shipyards. The Public is honored to call Sting a friend and thrilled to be hosting these benefit concerts.”

The show will be performed at the Anspacher Theater with tickets running from $250 to $2,500; however, a small number of tickets for the 260-seat theater will be made available to the general public through a lottery.

Plans are for a Broadway premier sometime in 2014. The album of the music will be out on September 24.
